The manual says 40 to 42 mm behind the point where the main wing has the little change in angle near the root...

Thanks guys, the two descriptions end up in about the same place!

Any other tips for this plane? I am using 7 cell 2000 mah packs.

Cheers
Kev

I would definately use 8x1950 4/5 AUP`s the lighter weight and the low internal resistance transforms the plane with stock motor & fan and gives an easier hand launch.7 cells I found to be a bit of a No No .Good Luck.

Thanks Pontious,

What is the maximum current that this motor can draw? I might go to a single pack of 8 / 9 or even 10 cells 2000 to start with rather than spending more cash on another pack.

Thanks
Kev

Hi Kev,
With 8 Subc cells it pulls high 30`s current and my motors lasted about 25 flights before burning out,I would not advise going to 9 or 10.I am on my third airframe now with brushless Kontronic but originally started with 8x2000`s.
Use a 40 Amp ESC.
Regards,
Terry.
